Roschier continues to fortify its Employment & Benefits practice: appoints a new counsel

Jukka Paloheimo has been appointed Employment Counsel to Roschier's Employment & Benefits practice in Finland.

Following the recent appointment of Partner Anu Waaralinna, Roschier continues to fortify the team in response to increasing client demand for strategic employment advice. Through the arrival of the newly-appointed Employment Counsel Jukka Paloheimo, the firm further strengthens its experience pool especially in the area of employment-related litigation and arbitration proceedings.

Jukka Paloheimo joins Roschier from the Finnish law firm Castrén & Snellman, and has in his previous role handled demanding employment litigation, including complex industrial safety matters and employment law related criminal cases.

"We see an increasing demand for both stand-alone, specialist employment law advice and combining this know-how with other practices' expertise, for example in transactions," says Mikko Manner, Head of Roschier's Helsinki office. "We are very happy to be joined by these two prominent employment law profiles in Finland. Together with Partner and the Swedish Head of the firm's Employment & Benefits practice, Jenny Welander Wadström, they will be part of a team that can effectively respond to the growing market demand for Nordic legal service offerings," he concludes.
